The most common seen hernia is Bochdalek (90%). In this presentation, late congenital diaphragmatic hernia is described in a patient treatment and follow-up process. Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a congenital malformation manifested by diaphragmatic hernia, pulmonary hypoplasia and abdominal organ changes. The most common accepted theory of etiology is a problem in the closure of pleuroperitoneal canal. Left-sided hernias which are seen  after puberty is rare. Our case is one of them. In conclusion, although the frequency of late congenital diaphragmatic hernia is 0.17–12 %, it is a clinical situation that may be encountered in intensive care practice.
